Universal Lifting System Lifts Products with Varying Geometries

Cynergy Ergonomics has recently developed a universal lifting system to lift and manipulate materials with vastly different geometries with a single vacuum lifter. With capacities of over 1,000 pounds, and the ability to handle virtually any shape or geometry, this vacuum griper is ideal for job shops, custom manufacturers, and shipping/receiving areas that are tasked with handling a wide range of products. The “smart” design maintains vacuum only on the cups which have contacted the lifting surface – allowing this Cynergy Ergonomics innovation to handle cylindrical products like pipe, flat items like board or panels, and varied geometries like turbine blades, pallets, curved shapes, and more.

A video showing this universal lifter handling a variety of materials is available at www.cynergyergonomics.com/vacuum-gripper.

Cynergy Ergonomics specializes in ergonomic workstations and material handling equipment such as lifts, articulating arm manipulators, sheet, panel and roll lifters, vacuum tube lifting, roll manipulators and material handling equipment. They specialize in lifting device design, lift assist system designs, material handling vertical lifts, manual ergonomic pick and place systems and workstation improvements for manufacturing, assembly, production and distribution centers that currently use human power for material handling as well as providing automated material handling solutions.
